Before Death Cab played last night at Detroit’s Fox Theater, Ben sat down with the Detroit Free Press to answer a few questions (five, to be exact). The interview is short, but actually very interesting. Ben gives us more insight into what happened last week when the stage collapsed at the Ottawa Bluesfest, he says:
Everybody’s fine. We were in the backstage area 20 yards away from the stage when it collapsed. The touch-and-go moment was when the stage collapsed and we asked, “Where the (profanity) is Trevor, where’s Lucas?,” our crew people who might have been on the stage.
Then we saw all our people and (Cheap Trick band member) Robin Zander offstage and they were OK. It was still very terrifying. A couple of people got hurt, but it’s an absolute miracle that no one got killed.
